Two Weeks In July

Two Weeks In July

It`s now been a little over 2 weeks since Glenn Hoddle tried to bury news of his resignation in the run up to England`s defeat to Portugal and Wolves are still without a replacement.

The depleted squad is still bereft of new additions despite losing a dozen or so of last seasons players, and fans are starting to get twitchy.

It`s known that a shortlist for the position has been drawn, and it is believed that interviews have already been held, although the names on the former, and the results of the latter are as yet unknown.

One of the first to throw his name into the hat, Paul Ince, The Guv`nor has massive grassroots support and his appointment would be seen in most quarters as a move in the right direction.

Other names linked so far are Joe Royle, Mick McCarthy, John Ward and Steve Cotterill, with no less than Steve Bull backing a move to appoint a manager such as Ward from the lower leagues.

Whoever takes up the challenge, the will inherit a depleted squad now missing around a dozen of last years number, and consisting mainly of youth academy graduates, under performers, and a smattering of seasoned pro`s, which has led expectation amongst Wolves fans to hit its lowest point for many a season.

Whether this is a bad thing or not is open to debate. Season after season of pre season expectation built around a highly paid squad of internationals has led to one successful campaign. And that lack of success has manifested itself in an unforgiving audience as likely to jeer a goal as cheer it.

The lack of public transfer activity during the search for a new manager has done nothing to calm Black Country fears that pre season preparations are leaving their side painfully under prepared.

To this end, the club have retained the services of one of a pair of young Brazilian triallists for at least another week, and have welcomed another Magyar, Balazs Molnar on trial for the next seven days, but the commonly held view amongst fans is that if Wolves are to survive let alone compete in the coming campaign, then something needs to happen, and it needs to happen fast

Wolves take on Tranmere Rovers tonight coming off the back of their first pre season defeat to Burton Albion, and are hoping to field Molnar in a semi competitive situation.
Anything less than a victory and the dark murmurings are going to be difficult to ignore.

A win may be merely papering over cracks, but bereft of any news of a managerial appointment, Wolves fans will take their comforts where they can.

Yes they do Miller, if you actually read the articles then you will not need to post stupid comments and questions. Said from when Hoddle left a partnership between Ince and the assiatant manager for 12 months.
